The little Phil/Jerry space before they go into Eyes reminds me of that brief passage in the middle of the 7/25/72 Other One when it's also just Phil & Jerry, making music of the spheres. (Except that the 7/25/72 passage goes for a lot longer.) One of those "inspiration, move me brightly" moments...Jerry just places a few offhand notes at the end of Phil's solo, but they open up wide vistas.

This old thread came to mind:

You said it perfectly, those few notes are so small yet so big!

a while back i read your review of 7/25/72 and immediately listened to that performance, the mere suggestion that there was anything as beautiful as this passage had me amazed. i was certainly not disappointed, that jam is probably even more beautiful than this. i just love discovering these unique moments...

I'm glad you brought up this show. i had downloaded it a couple years back (don't remember which source was available then) and then somehow forgot about it.

This last Fall i took a trip to California to visit some relatives in the far reaches of the Lost Coast. I had a two day stopover in San Francisco. This was my first time visiting San Francisco and as a Head i was utterly ecstatic.

The first night in town I found a hostel in the Mission District. I dropped off my belongings, bought a bottle of wine and started walking. I walked for miles until finally i found myself standing in front of 710 Ashbury St.

Next morning i woke and walked to Golden Gate Park. While walking around the park i listened to the Dane County mentioned here. It was a beautiful mid Fall day and this show made a fantastic soundtrack to my Golden Gate wanderings.

I'd like to second the "Playin'" you pointed out as a masterpiece. This "Playin'" is played with such conviction and a tone that almost comes off as serious. Like the whole crew had some deep psychedelic voyage to embark upon and this song was the ship they choose to set sail upon.

yes, this is a beautiful, creative show. I would love, be absolutely enthralled, to see a source of this show re-mastered by Mr. Charlie Miller and uploaded onto the archive.

You out there Charlie?

Good call on this one.
Interesting thing, that there is only one source on the archive for this show.
Only 5 reviews and all from within the last year.
Something seems odd about this. Were there other sources that are now missing, or did reviews of this source disappear. This is a pretty well known show. Seems to me there should / would be alot more review traffic than there is.

1973 was the first thing I obsessively collected when I discovered this place about 6 years ago, but I do not have a copy of this show - so I believe that it appeared in the last year or so. The first reviewer says something similar about it being "brand new."

As clementinescaboose mentioned in his post, there was another version of this show here a few years ago - it was actually one of the top downloaded shows, with tons of reviews - but it disappeared at some point before 2007.

Finster it was good to see yer picture the other day along with the other folks. This is a mighty performance which had me up till 3 this morning. It's now afternoon and I'm back on it. I showed the photo of Mando with his friend's daughter to mine. She said, "I know how she feels."

I actually don't like 16-song sets in 1973 as I feel like most of these songs were tighter and rocked harder in 1972. I like this concert slightly less than 2/9.

That being said, Playin' and Dark Star->Eyes are both keepers for sure.
